I think that I am asking the same thing ... when I start my mac, I see an ugly elephant in my menu bar. I have two issues ... That is what the dock is there for I am not running EN !!! even after a restart the elephant is there!Point 1 is just intrusive (poor) design. Point 2 however suggests that some part of EN is loading when my mac starts; without my permission .... how do I stop EN launching any process at start up (not just hide the elephant)? Looking through the EN preferences I can see something about EN helper running in the background (an emphatic off!). Looking at my system preferences, EN is not listed in my login items ... Is there somewhere else that I should look to prevent EN from launching any processes? I see that a bug report was filed 12 months ago ... any news on a fix? Thanks.
